Susanne Staehlke studied Genetic and Microbiology at the University of Rostock, Germany, from 2000-2006. The subject of her diploma was signal transduction in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). In 2014, she earned her Ph.D. in Cell Biology at Rostock University Medical Center, Dept. of Cell Biology, Germany, with the title “Interaction of human osteoblasts with geometrically structured implant surfaces – Cell architecture and signal transduction”. Now she is a young researcher completing a post-doctoral training. She is a Member of the German Society for Biomaterials (DGBM). Dr. Staehlke has published over 15 papers on the subject of cell-material interactions. Her skills are cell culture, physical plasma, western blot, immunofluorescence, biomedical science, flow cytometry, cell proliferation, cell signaling and transduction. Dr. Staehlke has given invited presentations at international meetings around the world (Hong Kong: ICBB 2012, Minneapolis: BioInterface 2013, Oslo: ScSB 2013, Rytro: PSBM 2016-2018).
